A scene from season two of At the Museum

MoMA, Sean Yetter August 22, 2019

The second season of At the Museum arrives on YouTube and Magazine on September 13, with new episodes released every Friday. The eight-episode video series offers a behind-the-scenes, cross-departmental view of MoMA’s staff preparing for the Museum’s reopening in October. From curators and exhibition designers mapping out the new collection galleries to artwork being removed, restored, and rehung; from conservators finding hidden brushstrokes while X-raying an Henri Rousseau painting to a security supervisor searching for a quiet moment to refocus in front of art, At the Museum brings viewers inside the busy, exciting project of a new MoMA—and the moments of reflection and unexpected stories that emerge.

Before the September launch of season two, head to MoMA’s YouTube channel and catch up on the first season, which follows MoMA staff as exhibitions are designed, installed, and opened to the public.
